Cult actor Harry Dean Stanton dies at 91

Legendary character actor Harry Dean Stanton died on Friday, and Hollywood was quick to mourn the "Big Love" actor. "Goodbye, Harry Dean. Rest in peace", tweeted John Carpenter, who directed Stanton in "Escape from NY".

He has most recently appeared in this year's revival of Twin Peaks. The actor passed away at age of 91 in hospital Cedars Sinai of californian city, as confirmed by his agent, John Kelly, in a statement.

On Friday evening, David Lynch commemorated the late actor by saying, "The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us".

"He played particular roles and was a natural in them", said Mills, who recalled how feeble Stanton was when he appeared at the Lexington festival in 2014 with actress Michelle Phillips. Stanton was one of his favourite actors.

Stanton may be most famous for playing Molly Ringwald's dad in the 1986 John Hughes classic "Pretty In Pink". Stanton was a fixture in Lynch's work, appearing in Wild at Heart (1990), Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992), the 1993 miniseries Hotel Room, The Straight Story (1999) and Inland Empire (2006). "I don't care", replied actor. Acting won, but many years of struggle would pass before Stanton would become a household name. There's nobody like Harry Dean.

Stanton landed his first leading role for Paris, Texas during an unassuming conversation with Sam Shepard at a bar in Santa Fe, New Mexico. "It's so great just to sit beside Harry Dean and observe", Lynch said at the show.

Director and actor Samuel West tweeted: "Harry Dean Stanton in PARIS, TEXAS".

He was a cook on board a ship during the battle of Okinawa in 1945 during his US Navy service in World War Two.

Stanton has been a staple on the big and small screens for seven decades.

"She cleared out me for Tom Cruise", Stanton said regularly.

On behalf of 411, our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Stanton.

"In the end, you end up accepting everything in your life - suffering, horror, love, loss, hate - all of it".

Author Stephen King paid condolences, and tweeted: "Harry Dean Stanton had the best line in "Christine": "I'm selling" this shithole and buyin' a condo'".
